LIVING IN MEMORY
With this work I want to focus on the concept of ageing in an environment that remains unchanged and on the solitude that is linked to this. The research wants to observe how memories are connected to the physicality and how these are going to establish a sort of virtual reality, where one might get trapped in. The dismay and, meanwhile, the consciousness of the withering body, do not interfere with a femininity that remains in the gestures and within the thoughts.
The subject of this work is my grandmother, the person with whom I had the most changeable relationship, according to our different ages. The intimacy that we always had among ourselves is reflecting now in the pictures, which are a sort of synthesis of our close relation during the years, a way to reconnect ourselves together and to read our lives from a new perspective.
In this work I reflect myself, not only as granddaughter, but also as a woman. At the same time I am aware of the fact that this is a way for me to go back in time and repeat her same process of living in a big memory.
Inevitably, this became a long-term work that will accompany and perhaps will lead our maturated relationship, until the last photograph.
